(This challenge and post are sponsored by Tyndale House and the Filament Bible)
A couple of days ago I challenged my readers to join me in reading the book of John. Did you join? If you missed the challenge, you can read more about it, along with my suggestions for how to begin reading the Bible, starting with the Gospel of John. We’re talking about what we’re learning over on Instagram, using the hashtag #startwithjohn.
FREE! Start with John App
Whether or not you currently own a Bible, go ahead and visit the Start with John website. There you can download a free Gospel of John app. The app will help you “study” the book of John with study notes, devotionals, videos, and maps. And, the book of John text is also on the website so you can read along as you explore the app, with correlating page numbers.
I’ve always loved the Gospel of John, but using the app has helped me look at it from different perspectives and given me a basis for a more thorough study.
One of my favorite parts is the video introduction to the book. It graphically gives an overview of the book in an interesting and engaging way, chapter by chapter. I think this background is a great place to start your reading.
I’ve also enjoyed exploring the places where Jesus visited, his miracles, and his healings through the interactive map. Both of these features can be found in the “See” function.
If you enjoy the free app as an adjunct to reading the book of John on the Start with John website as much as I do, you may find yourself learning more about the new Filament Bible. I have a copy of this Bible and so does Ben. There is a full app that goes along with Bible when you purchase it that is just like the Gospel of John app, but for the whole Bible.
For a limited time, you can purchase the Filament Bible at a discounted rate of 40% off by clicking on this link and using the code: crabtree40 through May 18.
